Learning experiences are one thing dishonesty is another. There is really no difference here between these people and somebody swearing in court that a crime took place and the defendant is guilty.

I almost said they were mostly teenagers... but could just as easily be adults that are teaching themselves this stuff and decide to post it in public just for fun ... to see who bites.
Don't get upset just because you fell for their little prank!
I haven respect what so ever for liars. Nor do I have any respect for people that defend them. You have the unfortunate liberal attitude that accepts dispicable behavior by labeling it a prank.
Pretty much everybody who pays attention to this sort of thing KNOWS that it's all speculation... that Apple would never let something like that out into the wild before they were good and ready to.
There is a big difference between speculating and being dishonest. If you can't recognize the difference you ought to ask yourself why.
Beyond that you are simply wrong. Apple does put hardware into the hands of field test engineers and the like. It is the only way to validate a device in the real world.
